Mulder and Scully are back in the thrilling novelization of the summer 2008 blockbuster movie based on the classic X-Files TV show! When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest’s questionable “visions” send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women’s disappearance. It’s a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past. Still, the truth of these horrific crimes is out there somewhere … and it will take Mulder and Scully to find it!

Okay. Scully was always a doctor but they do go out of their way to call her one here, so that lends credence to the bit from the leaked trailer that suggests she’s a doctor or a surgeon working in a hospital.

Sounds perfectly scary, and it’s going to be really good to see Mulder and Scully in action again.
